Claim to fame :As Harry Goldfarb in "Requiem for a Dream" (2000)
If acting is an addiction, Jared Leto is then a victim. He had shown total commitment in most of his works. Glancing back at his male leading role in "Requiem for a Dream" (2000), little had people known that he was going through an extreme diet and gave up sex with his then fiancee, Cameron Diaz to make himself appear closest to the character Harry Goldfarb, the drug addict. Through this movie, his co-star, Ellen Burstyn was nominated Best Actress in a Leading Role in the 2001 Oscar. Ironically he didn't get any. For Leto personal satisfaction sometimes worth more than praise. "All of my roles have had their own unique set of challenges, and I enjoy that in some perverse, masochistic way," he said.
